On the Brain Labor Report for September 18, 2013 we interview Ann Montague, President of SEIU503's Retiree Local. We discuss austerity and the struggle of in-home health care workers for fair contracts, wages and benefits. We explore the struggles for union workers to get a fair contract in Salem about the challenges of our two-party political system. We also celebrate the Department of Labor's new regulations to extend basic labor protections to millions of in-home care workers, entitling care workers to minimum wage and overtime protections and ending 75 years of unfair exclusion from the Fair Labor Standards Act.
"This is a bipartisan attack..." Ann Montague
